In a 5-4 decision, the Republican-controlled Supreme Court has upheld the “disparate impact” standard of discrimination:
“WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court handed a surprising victory to the Obama administration and civil rights groups on Thursday when it upheld a key tool used for more than four decades to fight housing discrimination.
The justices ruled 5-4 that federal housing laws prohibit seemingly neutral practices that harm minorities, even without proof of intentional discrimination.
Justice Anthony Kennedy, often a swing vote, joined the court’s four liberal members in upholding the use of so-called “disparate impact” cases. …”
In other words, if black people are disproportionately failing to succeed in something, then it is not their fault. It is the fault of institutional racism, discriminatory policies, “the legacy of slavery,” etc. It is a historic decision for Black Run America (BRA) which is based on the proposition that nothing is ever the fault of black people and that the promotion of black people above all others is the highest good of the social order.
Note: I want to stress here that the Republican Party is responsible for appointing Anthony Kennedy to the Supreme Court.
